  • Marvel at the Ochre Path in Roussillon
  • Get to know the French riviera in an immersive way
Overview
Spend a relaxing day visiting one of the most famous areas in Provence : the Luberon region.
What to Expect
Drive to Fontaine de Vaucluse and walk up to the cave from which the River Sorgues emerges. This impressive resurgence spring hasn't revealed its secrets yet and many speleologists have tried to find out the exact depth of the well in vain. Continue to the hilltop village of Gordes and its cascade of white houses that almost tumble down the hillside and take some photos of one of the most beautiful villages in France.

After a 15-minute drive you will reach Roussillon, a picturesque and unique spot in Provence. The hill on which the village resides is composed of various shades of ochre rock which can be seen all over the facades of the local houses. Enjoy a short and easy hiking trail called The Ochre Path through a former ochre quarry and the surrounding woods. 

Next up travel to Bonnieux village and take a look at the Roman bridge Pont Julien on the way, one of the numerous Roman remains in Provence. A winding road passes the village and there are small squares with shops and cafés at different levels. Walk up to the old church dating back to the 12th-century.

Continue towards Menerbes, passing through the village of Lacoste for a photo stop. Menerbes became world famous thanks to the writer Peter Mayle who chronicled his first year as a British expatriate in Menerbes in his book  A Year in Provence. End the day with a wine-tasting down the village and taste 3 different wines produced in a family-run winery.
